Only a quick question, is it possible to have the DVD-121 hacked for readspeed as per Liteon dvd readers, so that ripping of dvd-r can be done at 14x, as this would make the pioneer 121 one hell of a drive as this is the only complaint I have about it.
Try the patched version of SPDWIN: http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=22747
Thanks, Just tried that still no-go starts at about 4x then climbs to about 9x but with liteon it starts at 6x climbs upto 12x plus, so I can copy on fly at x8 ok, It may just be a physical limitation of drive, but As the liteon is picky over media and the pioneer reads everything I was hoping that if speed of pioneer could be upped to 6x - 14x I would have the best of both worlds, a very fast and reliable reader, I guess I will have to stick with lieon for now
If the Pioneer read at higher speeds, then maybe it would read just like the Liteon
Pioneer 121 reads smooth discs that are very difficult to read for the LiteOn 166s, hence a better chance to read disks ok at higher speed.
